Approval Due Date on Dashboard

I've created a dashboard for executives who need to approve many things. However, the one thing that is missing from both their inbox/to-do and the dashboard is knowing when the Approval Due Date is. The Dashboard only shows the task/project due date, which doesn't help them prioritize their tasks.

I absolutely back up Pebble's note. Tasks can become overdue quite quickly when the approver thinks that the final due date is their due date (from looking at dashboards, calendars, or to-do lists). Having to review each and every task to hunt down the approval due date eliminates the efficiency that Wrike should provide.

I have this same issue. It is very difficult to prioritize tasks when only the task due date is visible on the dashboard. Please fix!

I agree with all of the posters above. We have the same issues as mentioned. Additionally, we have users who don't update the task dates, so the dashboard shows "overdue" for the approvals, when in fact the approver still has 5+ days to review. All of the "overdue" approvals make the approvers look extremely behind on their work (sometimes by months) when their manager reviews the dashboard. Most of our reviewers complete their reviews well under their due dates, but you would never know it looking at the dashboards.
